Lately, I’ve really felt like that. I’ve had so many things going on but surprisingly, I’ve actually been doing a good job with taking care of them. Well… Except for blogging. But then again, what else is new. (#):)
Venture Numero Uno
So I know you’re wondering what I’ve been up to and I wish I could say. But the funny thing is… When you’re trying to make it in different ventures and trying to convince others to give you large sums of money… Well, you have to watch what you say and where you say it so that you don’t damage the brand you’re trying to create. Make sense? I guess I learned this sentiment when I was actively practicing Real Estate and maybe I can present it another way just to drive the point home… While I know what I’m doing (I get paid very well at my 9-5 to do it), have been doing it for years, (about 15 years), and speak very well… Many potential suitors will forget those things when they see that I’m relatively young, don’t have an office, and haven’t been “in business” for that long. You know what I mean? It’s always the chicken and the egg thing… You can’t get business unless you’ve already done business.
But don’t think that I’m complaining about my situation. These last two weeks have been really hard but I’m out there doing the justice, creating some great work, and at the very least putting together a solid foundation for tomorrow and future clients. And at the risk of counting my eggs before they’re hatched, I think I’m probably going to get at least one sale out of everything. So BANGARANG.
Venture Numero Dos
So I have another venture I’m working on too that I’m keeping the wraps on. That’s one that I’m REALLY excited about and have started some preliminary work on as well. I won’t say much at this point just that it deals with affiliate marketing, is a great idea (if I say so myself), and I owe the idea to my favourite radio show. I know this post isn’t really entertaining since I’m heavily censoring myself, but at least with this one you’ll hear more sooner rather than later. Maybe in time this blog will turn out to be like Bob Parson’s of GoDaddy where I can finally take ownership of all this stuff and not have to be so clandestine about everything.
Something I CAN Talk About
One of the things that I started working on again was Learn Stuff Online! It’s my project that will never die!!! Honestly, it could’ve very well gone away but then I was looking at my earnings for Bush Mackel off of AdSense and I’m nearing like $10 a month on passive income! I know that’s not much for a LOT of people out there, but for me that’s really cool. ESPECIALLY since I don’t do much on this site to target specific targets or keywords. So after I saw that, I thought that I should really work on Home Theater How To @ LSO and maybe it would start paying off by the end of the year. Now not surprisingly, I’ve been slacking on THAT like I have on this blog but maybe now that things are returning to normal as far as my busyness is concerned I can really get on there and get my posting frequency back up!
My Super Slow Computer
My desktop at home is slower than molasses. The fact that I blew out the BIOS a while back while overclocking my rig doesn’t help the problem either. In a nutshell, my one SATA drive that has all my stuff needs to be re-formatted. Even with ad-aware, anti-virus and defrags, sometimes you just need to do it. Well, it seems like I couldn’t reformat it so instead I took it out and tried to start fresh with a good ol’ ATA drive. That worked like a charm and now I can actually run “msconfig” and install SP3 (which I couldn’t do before). Now I’m in the process of getting everything I need from the old drive to the new one. And then maybe I can work on the SATA drive again but currently I can’t select boot order so if I have both drives in, the SATA drive also gets priority blah blah blah
And Now the Miscellaneous
Well I took sometime this afternoon (or yesterday afternoon by the time you read this) to make some small changes to this site. I tell ya, small changes can do wonders as I really couldn’t STAND looking at this site for more than a minute. Still has a ways to go, but at least I can stomach it. What do you think? Can anyone notice the differences?
And last LAST night the wife helped me reverse the way my desk is built and in my house, it really lends itself well to its space now… Boring I know, but it’s one of those changes that you can just “breathe out” about. Everything feels just so much better now… Like I can breathe. Plus, I threw out a lot of stuff that was clogging up my desk so working on it now just feels great.
And aside from all that, I’m also doing decently well with Physical Therapy and Allergy Shots. Yeah, you didn’t even know I was doing that stuff right? Well normally I don’t have an opportunity to do it with my 45 minute commute to work and all, but it got to a place with my feet/knees and allergies that I had to make a change and start focusing on ME again. Admittedly, I don’t know how long I’m going to be able to keep it up with my 9 to 5 but here’s hoping it’s a while longer.
Finally, I don’t remember the last time I turned on my 360 was. My bulb just went in my projector, and I pretty much refuse to play games anywhere but my basement. AND I just re-did my home theater cabinet too!! ARGH! You know what the last straw was? My wife brought her family over and put on Twilight. That movie has clearly ruined my life. Ok, well I’ve written enough here to cover 5 posts from me so hope you enjoyed it and thanks for all the follows on Twitter! Any bets as to whether its up or not right now?
